My original plan was to use DMS to do my electronics. Since that is not an option for the foreseeable future I have to get my fix at home.
First issue is a work bench. My roommate (who does the day to day cleaning an house work) put her foot down and forbid using me using the kitchen table (works for me). So until I can afford something different my bed ill be my protoboard work station. Long tern I will buy/build a ramp to the Garage and set one up there. Back when I was mobile I didn’t worry too much about ESD damage. That was because most parts were cheap and easy to acquire. With Tanner’s Electronics store becoming a casualty of the pandemic that is no longer the case. I am now on a fixed budget, which means I will really need something before I pay shopping costs. Every part has become more valuable, so ESD station protocols are now the order of the day and shall remain so.
Or those who don’t know what ESD is I have written an article on the subject.
Other project I have been doing at home is buying resistors to make a complete E24 ¼W 5% resistor kit, one for myself and one for the space (if the committee accepts it.) I will 3Dprint at set of storage units I will call books when the space eventually reopens. It will cover the decades 10E0 to 10E5. I have been taking a long view of this project, and will sell the kits at a low profit hen I can. One of the projects I’m working on is drawing the 3D print for when the space opens back up.
